Report: Brady likely to practice Thursday

Tom Brady, Leon Washington AP

Everyone with an interest in seeing the Patriots win games this season held their breath a little bit when word of Tom Brady’s knee injury broke, but the exhalations that started with news of a clean MRI can continue unabated.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Brady will be re-examined in the morning by doctors and that he is likely to practice on Thursday if the diagnosis remains unchanged from Wednesday.

There’s no mention of Brady’s status for Friday night’s game against the Buccaneers. The more time that Brady has to work with a new group of receivers the better, although any benefit would have to outweigh a potential aggravation of the injury. Should Brady practice with the team on Thursday, it would seem to be a pretty good signal about his availability for the second preseason game.

And it would be an excellent signal for the start of the regular season, which is far more important given the fears that briefly rolled across New England on Wednesday afternoon.

    Good news, glad to see this.

    Even with Brady in one leg Patriots win the AFC East

    Patriot Nation breathes a collective sigh of relief!

    as a pats fan i was never worried in the first place, he finished the drill and then jogged off the field you dont do that when you have a serious injury.. it was pretty obvious that he just tweaked it.

  7. isithockeyseasonyet says: Aug 14, 2013 9:10 PM

    Glad he’s ok, not a pats fan but hate to see a man sit because he’s hurt, still not a good sign tho, hopefully it’s nothing

  8. msclemons67 says: Aug 14, 2013 9:13 PM

    THIS is why the Patriots signed Tebow.

    Instant healing.

    Unreal that all Pats related betting was halted in Vegas as soon as the potential injury news hit Twitter.

    Why all the exhales of relief patsie fans, all y’all ever do is talk about how great mallet is and how great patsies would do with him at qb if something happened to Marcia.

    OK this makes Brady look like the little B@tch he is, he’s one of the biggest divas in all of sports. He gets away with what no one gets away with, winning does have its advantages.

  12. shadowcell says: Aug 14, 2013 9:48 PM

    That’s good news. I’m no fan of the Patriots, but I do enjoy watching Tom Brady play football.

  13. mayhemmatt300 says: Aug 14, 2013 9:56 PM

    it was almost Tebow time a little early.

  14. broncobrewer says: Aug 14, 2013 9:59 PM

    After watching Cassel a few years ago any QB besides Tebow can run that offense to the playoff

  15. michaeljacksonisback says: Aug 14, 2013 9:59 PM

    Bust

    Giselle says her husband can’t throw the ball and block the freakin’ pass rushers at the same time.

  17. southbeachtalent says: Aug 14, 2013 10:02 PM

    Glad he’ll be able to practice, from a Fins fan.

    And my FF team.. Had to draft early this would have been a kick in the junk.

  18. thereyougo2 says: Aug 14, 2013 10:03 PM

    Why push it!

    What’s with the Adam Schefter reports /like the entire league reports to Adam and we get the real truth?

  19. thereyougo2 says: Aug 14, 2013 10:05 PM

    Oh thanks Adam for that report. Nice three inch heals Adam.

  20. football58 says: Aug 14, 2013 10:09 PM

    Does it really matter, the Patriots will be one and done IF they make the playoffs.

  21. gorwr12 says: Aug 14, 2013 10:34 PM

    Out 6 weeks IMO…after a few sacks his knee is done like last time

  22. deadunicorn says: Aug 14, 2013 11:27 PM

    How is his video camera finger? Much more important than his knee

  23. wolfmanpatriot says: Aug 14, 2013 11:31 PM

    Time to strap on that lenix hill knee brace. First model was invented for Broadway Joe. Tougher than a tank this brace is.

    Jay Gruden’s son is so happy right now.

    @footballfanradioshow: Please refrain from using the label “Nation” when referring to your patriots.

    There is only One Nation, The ORIGINAL Nation…

    RAIDER NATION

    Everyone else is an imposter.

    One of the most sickening things I ever saw was videos of the incredible celebration jet fans had when Brady went down for the season in 2008. It was like for the 1st time since 1969, they actually felt they had a shot w/Farve at qb….We later all watched them self destruct, just a bit later than normal.

    But the excitement they had that day,, showed me just how pathetic they are…Only way winning has a shot is thru others’ losses.

    I imagine jet fans got a little damp when news came out yesterday….even though they won’t win 4 games.

    So I say “anyone who has a neck tattoo is probably a giant sack of garbage” and he says “we’ll see”?

  28. jzone954 says: Aug 15, 2013 6:18 AM

    Even a dolphins fan, glad to see he didn’t get seriously hurt.

  29. jimmyt says: Aug 15, 2013 7:10 AM

    Good for him. Still a cheater.

  30. exboomer says: Aug 15, 2013 7:51 AM

    Whoppee!!… not!

  31. flmike says: Aug 15, 2013 8:18 AM

    I think the story people are missing is, NE’s LT got bull rushed and was forced back into his own QB by the Bucs DE. Apparently this wasn’t the only time he was man handled by the defense this week. The bigger story for NE fans is, is he ready to protect St Tommy’s blindside and keep him from getting killed this season.

  32. jrs1972 says: Aug 15, 2013 8:26 AM

    This whole ordeal would have been less stressful if tim tebow was on some other team.. that possibility was terrifying.

  33. sbmcintosh36 says: Aug 15, 2013 9:29 AM

    And the Tebow flock just curled up crying in the corner. .. again
